Coming out of his technical area to collect the ball, Arteta quickly gave the ball to Buyako Sako.

The England international then launched a counter-attack which led to Gabriel Martinelli putting the ball in the back of the net.

The Odegaard challenge works

One of the many roles of a manager is to motivate his players and get the most out of them.

Speaking ahead of the match, Arteta said summer signing Martin Odegaard needs to create and score more goals in the future.

“He has to play close to the opponent’s box, that’s for sure,” Arteta admitted ahead of Sunday’s game.

That’s exactly what the former Real Madrid playmaker did, opening the scoring as Arsenal won 3-2.
